2015.1 Vivado Simulator - Simulation using DPI fails in Ubuntu OS

Description

In Ubuntu, when I try to run DPI simulation to bind compiled C code to System Verilog, the following error occurs:

ERROR: [Simtcl 6-50] Simulation engine failed to start: Simulation exited with status code 1.

Solution

This is a known issue with Vivado Simulator DPI simulation in Ubuntu.

The work-around is to add the "-cc gcc" option to the xelab command.
